There isn't much weather news to report in Maryland and the mid-Atlantic this week other than to say ideal, calm weather is expected to last throughFather's Dayand the Star-Spangled Sailabration. No news is good news, right? Not when you're a weather blogger, but who can complain with 80 degrees and partly cloudy skies? For the peak of the Sailabration festivities on Saturday, mostly sunny skies and temperatures just shy of 80 are in the forecast, according to the National Weather Service.

THE DARK SIDE of getting a black eye is that it doesn't do much for your public image. Unlike a milk mustache, which, thanks to a clever advertising campaign, has become a sign of celebrity, a black eye is still regarded as public proof of bad behavior.Sporting a "shiner" makes you an easy target for wisecracks. "So you got mouthy with the wife and she let you have it?" quipped a lifeguard at my neighborhood swimming pool as I floated past him.I had gone to the pool to soak in the cool waters, to escape the rough-and-tumble world, to heal and hide.

ON THIS FATHER'S Day, consider the seahorse, the mother of all fathers. This delicate little sea creature, valued as medicine in Asian cultures and as key chains in ours, is on display at the National Aquarium of Baltimore, the most successful exhibit in the 21-year history of the aquarium. It is the perfect family outing for Father's Day. That's because the seahorse fathers are the mothers, a role reversal unheard of anywhere else in the animal kingdom, except perhaps in homes where the mother is particularly overbearing or earning a much larger salary.

Here's the cheery message that greets all fathers as we slog through this wonderful spring of recession and layoffs and swine flu: Dear Dad, take a hike. I say this because of a new and depressing national survey released just in time for Mother's Day. The survey shows adult children would overwhelmingly choose to have Mom move in with them instead of Dad if their elderly parents couldn't take care of themselves. My fellow dads: Is this beautiful or what? In fact, the survey by Towson-based Senior Helpers, a provider of in-home care for the aging, showed that fully 70 percent of adult children would pick Mom over Dad. Yes, when it comes to making the big decision about which parent to take in, the thinking apparently goes like this: Poor old Mom needs a little help.

IT IS FATHER'S DAY, again. It is a day that stresses repetition. Innovation is not the theme here; ritual is. The same gifts -- socks or ties or shirts -- will be given to us. That is fine with most of us. We don't want to be surprised. We also look forward to our annual pat on the back, or backside. We also get to enjoy our favorite meal.The meal always lasts longer than other parts of the Father's Day festivities, which is fitting. Most dads don't cotton to prolonged sentimental ceremonies, but we don't mind lingering over extra helpings of strawberry pie.I have said all this before, but it bears repeating.

Before we get into how former President Bush ruined Father's Day, let me tell you about an Internet ad I came across a few days ago. "This Father's Day, give dad the thrill of a lifetime!" the ad said. "Let him experience ... parachuting!" And there was a picture of some middle-aged schlub falling from the sky while grinning and giving a big thumb's-up to the camera. As I stared at the ad, I could feel my feet begin to sweat. Look, I know there are dads out there who thrive on adrenaline rushes.

My dad spoke Kid — even Adult Kid. He knew that in challenging times, an "I'll be OK" from my brother or me really meant, "Stick with me. " Even when unsure of exactly what to do, he would just show up. I do not mean he would move in or plant on our couch — I mean that he would help us come up with a game plan, and then call every three hours even if just to say, "I love you. " In Kid, these calls translated into: "You are not alone. " He practiced the gospel of the "FUNdamentals," as he wrote the term he preached from our first lacrosse toss in the backyard and through his team dad years.

The South Carroll Senior Center celebrated Father's Day early with a daffy salute to that most typical of dad gifts - the tie. A chorus line of tie-clad contestants paraded along the stage and waved their cravats to a cheering audience of about 200 gathered at the Eldersburg center for the festivities Thursday. They competed for prizes in myriad categories, leaving the decision on brightest, longest, zaniest and prettiest to the crowd's discretion. Center manager and emcee Karen Larrimore, dressed in a pink-print tie, polled the audience before awarding the winners.

OAKMONT, Pa.-- --Earl Woods wasn't with his son at Pebble Beach in 2000. By then, Tiger Woods' father already had significantly scaled back his travel schedule. "It's Father's Day, and I can't tell you enough about what my dad meant to my golf," Tiger Woods said on the day he won his first U.S. Open, after posting one of the most impressive performances anyone had ever seen in a major. "I can't thank him enough. ... And to have my dad still alive while I won this championship on Father's Day, it's very important to me."

I surrender. It's only the beginning of May, and I'm already worn out by all the gift-giving required by modern society. Maybe it's that I sent a relative flowers for her birthday and my inbox has subsequently been innundated with daily reminders that Mother's Day is approaching. Or maybe it's because I didn't realize that part of my responsibility as a spouse was making sure that my husband fulfilled his maternal obligations as well. No, it's probably that I know I won't be delivering my own mother the present she's been wanting for years --- a grandchild.
